So, last night I sat down to knit my sock and watch Grey's. I got through about 15 minutes before I notice that the center pull on the knit picks yarn wasn't coming out. I tried to get the yarn out and it was DISASTROUS!!! I stopped after I knew I had created a mess and I couldn't fix it on my own. I went into Special K who was watching a college football game. We sat there trying to untangle the yarn for about 2 hrs. I was proud of him for not giving up until we were both tired and ready for bed. We ended up getting to sleep at midnight and I didn't get to watch grey's or ugly betty until this morning. That's ok though because I had the day off.
I am upset that I've been having such a hard time getting these company done center pulls to work for me. Remember the post about the baseball game and Special K having to help me with that yarn as well. Does this happen to others?? How do I prevent it?? Do I need to rewind it into a center pull ball before I cast anything on?? HELP!!!
I've decided to put aside the last mess of yarn because Special K is actually much better at untangling it than I. I made it worse. So...I'm UPSET that I can't finish my sock. I'm half way done with the foot part and almost to the toe.
Sorry if this sounds like a whiny complaining post but I'm just disappointed that it didn't pull out easier.
Trying to Happily knit!!!
PS. I still love the feel of knit picks yarn, just have to figure out how to get it to work for me and not against me.
I don't have any pictures of the mess because my camera is dead. I'm charging it up and will try to get a pick of the last bit of mess before it gets untangled.
